Art II Oct 20


SPECTRUM HOMESCHOOL COMMUNITY
Art II Lesson Plans October 20, 2011

PRE CLASS: students present work done over the week for instructor’s critique. Review of last week’s technique. Only positive comments are allowed.

OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY: Or inspiration for today is from Gospel of St. John. 15:5, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” NIV.

If you are working on a difficult task remember Jesus is “your vine.” The vine gives energy, life, nutrition, and everything the branches need to grow fruit. No matter what church you go to Jesus is the “Vine,” a Christian’s inspiration, power, and hope. If you take a branch off the vine it can’t make fruit. Sometimes when I have a hard time I say something like, “Jesus This project is too big or hard I give myself to you and ask you to do it through me. I give you my weakness and receive your strength, I give you my lack of ideas and receive your wisdom, I give you my inability and receive your power. Thank you Jesus you are going to do this through me.”

INSTRUCTION AND DEMONSTRATION ON TECHNIQUE:  Our demonstration will be how to paint a wave splashing over a rock.

CLASS PROJECTS: Electives today!

1.      Students may finish the cottage begun last week,

2.      or paint a still life of bananas,

3.      or a fantasy painting of a dwarf

4.      or replicate the sea wave from the demonstration.

AT HOME THIS WEEK: Draw paint two pictures of the students choosing. Make an autumn poster or picture; it can be any theme that has to do with the autumn season such as harvest, thanksgiving, all saints night (even Halloween if you are not opposed to it). It can be any style, it can have writing or calligraphy on it or a verse or poem.
